The data of 266 thousand clients of the Trident Crypto Fund got into the network

The names of 266 thousand users, their logins and passwords from personal accounts, email addresses and other confidential information were freely available

A database of the Trident Crypto Fund with information about clients was found freely available on the Internet. They include 266 thousand users.


It is specified that the database contains the names and surnames of the Fund's clients, their phone numbers, countries of residence, IP addresses, e-mails and passwords in encrypted form. Presumably, using this information, attackers can enter the users ' personal account and withdraw their cryptocurrency.

According to DeviceLock technical Director Ashot Hovhannisyan, the data leak occurred at the end of February, and by March 3, more than half of the passwords had been decrypted. More than 90% of the login-password pairs were unique and had never been met in the network before, the expert said.

At the end of December, a data leak occurred on the Poloniex exchange. The email addresses and passwords of some of its clients were found freely available on Twitter.
